The mission of Zion Lutheran Church is to reach people in the community with the life-giving message of Jesus and His love and to inspire the members for a life of devotion and service.
Our name “Lutheran” was a nickname given to followers of Martin Luther during the Protestant Reformation in the 15th and 16th centuries. Today, Lutherans are those in the Christian community who believe that the Bible, being the inspired Word of God, is the sole source for all doctrine. The Lutheran Confessions and the Creeds are based solely on the Bible. We believe that one is saved totally by the grace of God through our faith in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. One’s works or good deeds do not earn salvation but are an outward sign that faith is present in one’s life.
We believe in one Christian baptism (a Trinitarian baptism), and do not prescribe how much water or at what age a person is to be baptized. Because we view baptism as a gift from God and Scripture does not prohibit it, we do baptize infants and then offer Confirmation as a way to renew baptismal vows.
We attempt to celebrate Communion as closely as possible to the way Jesus instituted it. We offer Communion to Christians who believe that Christ is truly present in the bread and wine. Small children and those who do not wish to receive the elements (bread, wine Christ’s body and blood) are invited to receive a blessing at the Communion rail.
